minnesota congresswoman tea party darling michele bachmann opens up her mouth i either kring or laugh -- cringe or laugh out loud. how can somebody who is so out of touch with mainstream america, somebody who's so ignorant who's so dangerous, be a member of the u.s. house of representatives? many people were hoping that after her disastrous presidential run that ms. bachmann would fade quietly into the background. well i'm sorry to tell you she has no intention of going anywhere. she is running for re-election. this despite the fact she barely held on to her seat in 2010. she actually spent almost $12 million that year. more than any other congressional candidate in the country and she won with just 52% of the vote. tonight we want to introduce you to the brave soul who is we start at american motels with $2,000 in savings. >> times were tight with two young kids. >> we worked hard. >> we were blessed. >> it is time we help the middle class succeed, too. that's why i'm running for congress. >> he's the man who hopes

. other speakers included michele bachmann, bob mcdonald of virginia, and rick santorum. santorum pointed out, with pride i might add, that a true values voter never lets facts or information get in the way of their gut instincts. >> we'll never have the media on our side, ever in this country. we will never have the elite, smart people on our side because they believe they should have the power to tell you what to do. >> right wing pundit gary bower riled up the crowd urging them to get out and vote. >> there will be a lot of people to vote for the president. there's a lot of people around america who depend on checks from their fellow taxpayers being in the mailbox every day. they will turn out in massive numbers. my prediction is after all the votes are counted, even the dead votes of democrats in chicago, detroit and cleveland, i predict that we will win. that this national nightmare will be over. >> let's turn to barry lynn, executive director of americans united for separation of church and state, who obviously was at that conference as an observer, not a participant, i might add. w

bachmann or something. >> less the reporters you hear -- michele bachmann, santorum was up there, the gifts that keep on giving. >> bill: clarence, i have to ask you as the chief columnist for "the chicago tribune," one of many hats that you wear, the chicago teacher's strike is over. kids are back in school. who won that contest? >> i think in the short term, the teachers won. in the long run emanuel will. but this is a contest that, in my view, bill, had no winners. it just had losers which were the students because they lost over a week in the classroom that they sorely need. the problem is the city doesn't have any money. in fact, i've been -- i've been a journalist in chicago since 1969 under the original mayor daley, richard the first i have seen mayors come and go. one thing we all have in common is when the teachers want a new contract they go behind closed doors and the mayors give them whatever they want to try to avoid a strike. they used to have strikes so commonly that students would just expect them

they flirted with this idea of nominating people like herman cain and michele bachmann. >> stephanie: clint eastwood talking to a chair was the speech of the convention. how sad is this? 20% of viewers rated eastwood's bizarre speech as the high light, compared 17% for mitt romney, and 9% for paul ryan. >> their convention was so negative and such an attempt to actually introduce this guy who has been running for president for ten years. this convention paints a story of the president and first lady while connecting the policies. >> stephanie: i really wanted to say, this is how you do a convention. >> that's the way you do it. >> stephanie: and he did it with such charm and humor, in a way -- it was devastating. >> it was an indictment absolutely. and so much better than george w. bush's speech in tampa. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: you almost can't wait to here what they are saying in the right-wing world, because you are like really? dana lohse -- who was it -- was like i didn't think -- he was not at his best? really? well, you better hell hope he doesn't get any bet

congresswoman michele bachmann earlier. in a moment we'll open our phone lines to get your thoughts on what you've seen and heard. particularly congressman ryan's comments. he was heckled and shouted down several times. we want to get your thoughts about the summit in june. we are going to show you congressman ryan's remarks again after your phone calls. here are the numbers. (202) 585-3885 for democrats to republicans, your number to call, (202) 585-3886. and for independence it is (202) 585-3887. first call is david, calling from rochester on the republican's line. >> caller: good morning. the big issue is jobs. as chairman 490 mentioned yesterday there are five known people on extended unemployment insurance. i offer the suggestion that the federal unemployment insurance benefits be used in conjunction with a nine, $10 per hour job to create 3 million jobs. basically that would basically at no cost. that will put $600 million a week into the economy. would've been any comments from either mr. ryan or governor romney on this concept? family next, charles, west palm beach on the democrat line.

. ladies and gentlemen, please welcome michele bachmann! [cheers and applause] ♪ >> god bless you. what a wonderful morning. good morning. thank you for that warm introduction. it is always an honor and a thrill to be back at the values voter summit. i want to thank tony perkins, the great people at f.r. c. before i start, i want to say a word about this concept you have heard about called "the war on women," the so-called war on women. i want to say it has about as much reliability and truthfulness as bill clinton's arithmetic. but this week, as we have seen to our horror, there is a very real war that is going on across the world, and that's what i want to take my few moments together that we have this morning. i sit on the intelligence committee. we deal with the nation's classified secrets, and this is a very real issue. and as we survey the political landscape today, it feels like it is deja vu all over again. because we are seeing struggles all across the middle east. we're seeing attacks on our embassy, in a way that we saw in the late 1970's. staggering unemployment. you would a

an autograph to michele bachmann. so he was a huge hit on the house floor and now that he's returned. >> bill: yeah, right. >> any extra campaign money. never hurts. >> it was a real circus when he showed up because people only had about 20 or 30 seconds at a time and he's walking between the house floor and the private room so all of the press wanted to get something from him and the reporters were tripping over banisters and chairs, cameramen's lens popped right off and flew in the air. it is a real wild time with paul ryan power walking through the house last week. >> bill: i saw congressman charlie wrangle at a reception last week, the evening of paul ryan's triumphant return to the house and charlie was telling me that when he walked in, all of the republicans are -- they stand, they're applauding, they walked down to the well. they're applauding and charlie walked right down there with them and paul ryan spotted charlie wrangle and said what are you doing here and charlie says no, no, no, i want to thank you, too.

"led the honeymoon commence." it is fun to have this levy elephant. this is one thing that drives me nuts. bloomberg and the city council voted that he was right and they outlawed big drinks. you have bloomberg floating down as mary compensating "drop it, chubs!" this is when donald trump endorsed mitt romney. he is saying "you had me at i don't care about poor pepole." "we must consider deep cuts to the $70 billion green defense budget." "and it was working so well." "strike the solar panels." this primary season was one of the most interesting because they did not want mitt romney. did they want to rick santorum? really? "something like this could make a lesser fella question his inevitability." this was the front-runner, mitt. steve is sort of right of center, would that be fair? he gave a great endorsement. a lot of people in the republican party really question the sky. he is in michigan. do you remember this?
